How to Make It

  1. Heat 1/4 cup slivered almonds in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 2 to 4 minutes or until toasted.

  2. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add tea bags, and remove from heat. Cover and steep 5 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags, without squeezing. Stir in butter and salt. Bring tea mixture to a boil; stir in couscous. Cover and cook 2 more minutes or until liquid is absorbed; remove from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
